A blind or bird blind is a shelter, often camouflaged, that is used to observe wildlife, especially birds, at close quarters.
Saying I "bird blind" would be accurate, but I prefer to call it "birding by ear."
Look to this day, For it is life, The very life of life. In its brief course lie all The realities and verities of existence, The bliss of growth, The splendor of action, The glory of power-- For yesterday is but a dream, And tomorrow is only a vision, But today, well lived, Makes every yesterday a dream of happiness And every tomorrow a vision of hope. Look well, therefore, to this day. Sanskrit proverb by Kalidasa, Indian poet and playwright, Fifth century A.D.
